Traderjolene's Strawberry Thumbprint Cookies

I baked a batch of Homemade Thumbprint Cookies using @mrsbridges_food strawberry preserves. The perfect afternoon pick me up, when paired with coffee or tea.


  • 2 sticks of room temp butter
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 2 tsp vanilla bean paste
  • 2 cups all‑purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • @mrsbridges_food strawberry preserves


  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees
  • Cover baking sheet with parchment paper
  • Use a Mixer to together butter and sugar on medium speed until light and fluffy for 3 minutes
  • Beat in egg yolks & vanilla extract. Add flour and salt and mix until dough comes together. Place in the fridge for 30 mins
  • Make dough into 1 inch balls & arrange on greased cookie sheet( I use coconut oil spray)
  • Pro tip 💡‑ The 1/2 tsp makes the perfect thumbprint shape when you press it into the dough
  • Bake for 10 minutes. Remove cookie sheet from oven
  • Let them cool down and then fill each with a bit @mrsbridges_food strawberry preserves
